Crystal Torres

Whether it's traditional Jazz or sounds flowing from her Latin roots, Crystal Torres provides her audiences with a genuine musical experience.

The multi-talented musician/composer combines traditional Jazz with elements of Latin music, Funk, and R&B creating an eclectic sound that is all her own. Interpreting melodies on her trumpet with warmth and grace, Crystal reminds us that the trumpet also has a sweet side. Equally as sweet, her voice captivates audience's deepest emotions with soulful phrasing laced with fiery improvisations.

Born in Philadelphia, Crystal has been entertaining audiences throughout the Tri-State area since 1999 when she was featured at the NAACP Jazz Festival in Bucks County. As a high school student her musical accomplishments also included being selected for the Merion Anderson Big Band, Mellon PSFS High School All-Stars, Mid Atlantic Grammy Band, The Louis Armstrong Jazz Award, and numerous jazz workshop scholarships. Crystal furthered her studies when she joined the prestigious William Paterson University Jazz program with a full scholarship.
